"Shakespeare’s London and Shakespeare’s Globe"

“Shakespeare’s London and Shakespeare’s Globe” is an excursion that takes you to London to experience the city on two levels simultaneously: not only will you be able to have a look around today’s London, but you will also feel transported back in time to the historic city of Shakespeare’s day. You will wander around London’s oldest churches and theatres such as St Paul’s Cathedral and the Rose Theatre (Bankside’s first theatre, built in 1587), and explore the city in your spare time. Moreover, you will take part in practical workshops headed by Shakespeare’s Globe staff and experience two plays in the theatre itself.

The excursions are organized by two of Bremen University’s experts on Shakespeare and Elizabethan London, namely Practical Language Skills teacher Michael Claridge [http://www.fb10.uni-bremen.de/lehrpersonal/claridge.aspx] , who also runs the English-language drama group for students at Faculty 10, The Parlement of Foules [http://www.fb10.uni-bremen.de/anglistik/kultur/foules/default.aspx] , and university lecturer Dr Jana Nittel [http://www.fb10.uni-bremen.de/lehrpersonal/nittel.aspx] . Excursions last six full days and seven nights. Although the cost for travel, accommodation, workshops, theatre performances etc., are partially subsidized, all participants are required to financially contribute towards the overall costs of the excursion. In general, students may acquire credit points by partaking in the excursion as well as the accompanying seminar consisting of several workshop sessions in the previous semester. To date we have three documented excursions, which took place in 2011, 2013 and our most recent in 2016
